OK, I added a text file to 17812 describing my experiences. I heartily endorse the idea of a ‘back’ button! My narrative had to end when LC 8.0.1 refused to open any more property inspectors - no idea why. I also had to use the ‘fast forward’ button once, just go get some progress. It really does need to be more robust. I am still a long way from understanding widgets, I fear.
